Getting your daily dose of greens never tasted so good! Amazing Grass takes great pride in the quality of their wheatgrass supplements and meal replacement products. Amazing Grass arrived on the shelves of MVM earlier this week, and we are excited to now carry these high quality, best selling products!

Both of these are grown on a family farm in Kansas where they are then harvested and dehydrated on site.  Amazing Grass products are vegan, raw and contain no gluten. For those who are allergic to wheat, the Amazing Grass denotes that wheatgrass is not conventional wheat grains. In fact, the company believes that “many customers have found that consuming wheatgrass actually helps with allergies, since the body needs all the nutrients it can get to combat allergens”.
